The new Tourbillon model from Swiss luxury watchmaker PERRELET features a 50 mm-diameter XL case appearing in this refined two-tone interpretation. The rose gold bezel and case-back embrace a black DLC-coated steel case middle distinguished by a raised fluted pattern. This majestic exterior houses a prestigious movement equipped with one of the finest accomplishments of the watchmaking art, the tourbillon, starring at 12 o’clock on the dial.
Adorned with a fine silver-toned lattice pattern, it counts off the seconds above the off-centered hours and minutes subdial. The black background elegantly clothes the surfaces with their cleverly structured volumes. Rose gold enlivens the overall effect in a delightfully understated way, forming a perfect circle around the tourbillon, the dauphine hands and the baton-shaped hour-markers. The lugs merge seamlessly into the rubber strap, further emphasizing the purity of this creation.
The Tourbillon Black & Gold is issued in a 20-piece limited edition. The automatic P-311 tourbillon movement was developed for Perrelet in cooperation with MHVJ, a sister company within the group. Endowed with a frequency of 28,800 vph and a 65-hour power reserve, it is adorned with Côtes de Genève finishing visible through a sapphire crystal set into the caseback.
